The 2012 Chrysler 200 LX midsized sedan will appeal to retirees that want a quiet and comfortable ride. The 173-horsepower, 2.4-liter, four-cylinder Chrysler 200 comes equipped with a manual driver height and lumbar adjuster, easy-to-read gauges and displays, and acoustic laminated glass and sound absorbers that dim outside noises. Visibility isn't a problem with the Chrysler 200 LX. The car comes equipped with halogen projector headlamps and fog lamps that increase the area that's lit up, giving you more visibility on dark roads and in foggy conditions.

Safety conscious retirees will appreciate its "good" rating by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, which is the agency's highest rating, and its four-star overall rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Standard in all Chrysler 200 models is the electronic stability control feature, which automatically applies the brakes and reduces the engine power when it senses a difference in your steering and the motion of the car.

Its brake-assist technology helps you when you have to stop short by applying and maintaining maximum brake pressure. The Chrysler 200 also comes equipped with active headrests, which means they move forward and upward in a rear-end collision, aiding in reducing or preventing injury.
